Every time I look back at life I often wonder what if….
You are plagued by little thoughts which creep in as doubts. You could have done better, you want to change a lot of things. There is this desire that life could have dealt you better. Life has its ways to meander, it is you who has to decide….
When I was was younger I took my responsibilities to an extreme level, I behaved exactly how society mandated me to. The thought that I existed did not even cross my mind. All my decisions were governed by what is right for my children or my parents and my spouse etc. There is always a good time to correct this the faster you realise this the easier life will be. Pause, look around you, listen to yourself…. Ask? Are you missing out on something? Are you always complaining ? Do you sound bitter? Do you want to run away from life? Should you change your present situation? That is the point in life change happens….whatever stage you are in your life work on these things and see the change happen….
